Administrators who are happy tend to pass on their happiness to their subordinates thus, giving them the tag of being a happiness giving person to everyone around him/her. This descriptive study was conducted to establish the level of workplace happiness of La Salle University Administrators. The result of this study would be beneficial for the top management in decision making regarding the retention and training. Moreover, the result also helps in motivating the administrators to be happy in their work and be able to help the institution in retaining the current competent, qualified employees and administrators. The study involved the members of the President’s operations council of La Salle University for Academic Year 2010-2011. Questionnaires were distributed to gather data with the retrieval rate of 71 percent. Results revealed that 50 percent of the administrators of La Salle University are happy at work. They are composed mostly of women in the age range of 30-39 years old who are tenured and secured with their job status. The administrators are greatly affected in their happiness by the belief that they are doing something worthwhile. Meanwhile, they also believe that their level of happiness is not affected by whether they are probationary in status or they have competitive salary.
